Bagel Sign

On 36th Avenue, at the borders of Astoria & Long Island City, this New Yorker Bagels sign has a gracious, looping font.  Perhaps it was once an offshoot of, or precursor to, the wholesale New Yorker Bagel business on 12th Street, LIC.  The 12th Street company has been in business since '81.  The sign on 36th is a fine one, but the awnings around it have reduced its charm, and the bagels are less of a draw these days than standard deli & Mexican food.

I love that free-wheelin' and fancy-free lettering. I can see myself eating a bagel, the wind blowing through my hair as I cruise down the BQE in my convertible... ;)

That's a classic looking New York font for sure! And I agree with you about the awnings!
